A Shout From Beyond the Grave

I was watching the Weather Channel this morning and when they went to a commercial, the late Billy Mays was still shouting at me.

I guess video tape is the key to immorality, but I think it’s a little creepy to have someone whose death got a bit of attention last week still on the air. I suppose there are contractual issues at stake, and I’m sure his family doesn’t mind the income, but I thought there was some unwritten rule about pulling the ads made by a celebrity after they’ve died.
